Maya is looking for a change of pace. As one-quarter Arian, she is constantly overlooked or harassed by full humans and full Arians, despite the efforts of her over-protective grandparents when she was growing up. Even her own parents abandoned her and took off for parts unknown. Now she is determined to make her own way in life and to see other galaxies she had always dreamed of seeing. She takes a risk, packs up her bags, and travels several galaxies away to audition for a job as a ring girl for the Galactic Cage Fighters Association. Maybe she would meet some of her idols from the GCFA. The moment she meets Taurus she is instantly attracted to him, but he is reluctant to her charms. Maya doesn’t give up though. She keeps hoping he would warm up to her eventually. What does it take to get noticed by the reluctant male? Was something wrong with her? Was it because she was too human for his tastes? Just when things were looking hopeful, Maya finds herself in danger.
Taurus the Ape Man is one of the more popular GCFA fighters, and one of the most mysterious. No one really knows that much about him, not even his closest friends. He prefers it that way. Keeping others at a distance keeps him and everyone he cares about safe. Working as a fighter for the GCFA is a job that allows him be in charge and make the decisions about his own life. Power over his actions and future is something he did not have for most of his childhood. Plus, the GCFA pays him and the other halfsie fighters really well. The only downside to the job is having to deal with all the females, especially the human female fans. The females find his unique abilities appealing. After the abuse he suffered growing up in the orphanage and then in the breeding programs, he doesn’t care to get close to anyone—especially females. When he meets the halfsie Arian hired to be a ring girl, his senses go crazy. He fights his attraction to Maya, but it is a losing battle. Will he be able to keep himself from her? Will his past keep him from moving forward? How long can he hold off on his protective feelings toward her when Maya’s life is threatened?

Fourteen Years Earlier
Taurus was hungry. He was always hungry. The human children were fed three meals a day but the halfsie kids, like him, were only given one full meal and a snack. The headmistress claimed it was because their alien DNA kept them fit with less food. But he knew the truth—they were afraid of the halfsies’ strength.
“May I have some of your potato chips?” asked a small girl with brown pigtails.
June was just a tiny thing. Taurus had taken her under his wing, protecting her from the bigger kids. He handed over the one bag of potato chips they were given for a snack. She needed it more than he did. He thought of her as a little sister.
He was twelve years old, but he felt much older than that. June was eight years old. He loved her laughter and how her green eyes lit up when she smiled at him. She was the only bright spot in his dreary life. If not for her, he would have ran away by now. She gave him a purpose—he was her protector—her brother. He thought the saddest day of his life would be the day that June was adopted. However, that was not the saddest day.
To his horror, Taurus was taken from the orphanage when he turned thirteen. He was leaving June behind but he hoped a loving family would adopt her. Taurus knew that that was not what his future held for him. He had suspicions about his fate; it was confirmed the moment he stepped out of the orphanage building and he was put in the back of a materials transport shuttle. There were no windows on board and he barely had oxygen to breath. When he tried to run away from the human men trying to put him inside the dark container, they stuck a needle in his arm. His last thought was of June and how he failed her. Then the darkness claimed him.
Taurus woke to a nightmare, one long nightmare that seemed to stretch for years and years. He was still alive though. He survived four years of breeding experiments.
His first sexual experience had been in a windowless room. A prostitute was brought in to teach him what to do with his body. She smelled awful with cigarette smoke and her skin showed her age. He wasn’t interested even when she showed him her naked sagging body. But he learned that his body could be manipulated regardless of what his mind said.
After years of endless females sent to him for him to perform, he got used to it. If his body didn’t respond, the females manipulated him. The females changed from human prostitutes to full species females. Some like him were captives being used for breeding. Some females did whatever needed to be done and some came to him in shambles. They barely held on to their sanity.
Taurus learned that when he cooperated, he was allowed more freedoms. But he had to stand his ground with some things. He performed with the females who were willing and kept his distance from the ones that were a wreck. He refused to brutalize anyone even if he had to take a beating for it. But the coordinators of the facility didn’t want to damage him. So he found a way to make the best out of the situation.
Whenever he cooperated, he was given rewards. Some of those rewards included more food than what he had at the orphanage. Also, he was granted more exposure to sunshine and fresh air. Since he cooperated more with the experiments, they stopped giving him the drugs that would make him more sexually aggressive.
Taurus tolerated things, but he absolutely hated the human male guards that watched him all the time. He knew they jacked off while watching him with the females. They touched him sometimes on his ass when they had tried to put him in restraints. It was the only time he allowed his alien DNA surface fully and aggressively. It would scare the guards enough that they would leave him alone. For the most part, the guards left him alone. But the guards took great pleasure in antagonizing him verbally with the things they wanted to do to him, vile and sick things that no one should be put through. The threats were never carried through with him because the scientists would not approve. However, Taurus knew the moment his usefulness was done, the guards would carry through with the threats. It was just a matter of time.
Taurus spent so much time trying to stay alive, he hadn’t really thought much about what happened to the females when they weren’t brought to him for breeding times. Not until the day they brought in a young girl with brown hair and green dead-like eyes. His heart sank—June.
“June?” he asked because though he would know her from anywhere, she looked much older in the eyes. She wore the same sackcloth clothing that all the other females had worn.
She didn’t move far in the room but kept her eyes to the floor. “Get it over with,” her voice was different too, filled with pain and misery.
He approached her slowly, but he didn’t touch her. “June, it’s me Taurus.”
She looked up then and their eyes locked. “Taurus?”
She broke down and started crying. He took her in his arms and comforted her as he had done many times growing up in the orphanage. When she calmed he sat down with her on the floor. There was no way he would have her sit on the bed where all the other females had been.
